Silica Cab-o-sil Thickener

Cabosil silica epoxy thickener is for use when an extremely hard solid with high density is needed, i.e. structural bonding, filling and filleting. Can be used alone for a very smooth finish or in conjunction with chopped fiberglass.

Often times, cabosil is used to moderate the viscosity of the epoxy and is added in addition to other epoxy fillers. Silica thickener is similar to WEST Systems 406 Colloidal Silica.

    Comments about System Three Silica Cab-o-sil Thickener:

    This product is great at doing all of the things it says. I find that the west system 404 filler is more dense and better for structural applications, but I add this filler to my 404 at the end of my mixing. I find that it gives the 404 a better thickness, reducing the sag, and making spreading much easier. Add a little at a time to get used how fast it gives the desired consistency. I do this same thing with microlight and other fairing compounds for the same reason, just use sparingly with fairing compounds as it can become more difficult to sand. Bottom line, great filler by itself, but is very effective when added top other fillers to get that just right consistency.

      Comments about System Three Silica Cab-o-sil Thickener:

      I purchased this product to thicken epoxy for gluing wood together. I am building a Guideboat and many joints are vertical, this product does well to thicken the epoxy and keep it from running. It is very light and fluffy, so when scooping it out of the container it is likely you will loose some as it 'poofs' out.
